A loan of $4,250 helped a member to buy meat.

Prode Group's story

María is a member of the “PRODE” community bank. This group is made up of 7 friends from the same area. María is 41 years old and has 2 children. She works selling meat in her community's market. She also has a store in her house where she works in the afternoon. Her work is very difficult because she does it every day of the week and has no time off. Thanks to her hard work she has been able to offer her children financial stability and an education. Her biggest dream is for them to have good careers. With her business, she would like to keep investing in it. With the loan she has asked for she will be able to buy meat wholesale to stock her business. In the future she also wants to keep improving the construction on her home.

María wants to say: "thank you very much for supporting our communal bank!". In the photo, she is the woman in a striped sweater (red and gray).

In this group: Isidora*, Maria Rosa, Flor Carolina, Adela Jaqueline, Jose Luis, Billy Reynes, Armandina
